12:00 pm
you've finally earned enough on your airline credit card. now you just book a seat, right? not quite. metimes those seats are out of reach, costing an outrageous number of miles. it's time to switch... to the capital one venture card. with venture, you'll earn unlimited double miles on every purchase, every day. and when you're ready to travel, just b bk the flight you want, on any airline and use your miles to cover the cost. now that's more ke it. what's in your wallet? 3pm i'm kate snow in new york. very happy friday to you. superstition aside, not a really great day for donald trump, the "washington post" calling him almost certainly the least transparent candidate in the era of modern media. we'll let you be the judge of
12:01 pm
that. in a minute you'll hear the brash language he used in his still hidden tax information and exclusive news on his self-funded campaign. ari has been working on it all day long. >> we first brought you this this morning, donald trump's campaigns decided to maybe use some of the money they are now using to pay back loans. i have this statement from donald trump say is have no intention of paying myself back for the nearly $50 million i have loaned the campaign. this money is a contribution made in order to make america great again. it's signed donald j. trump and i just received it. what that means is that donald j. trump is saying he now has no intention of using any of the new funds to pay himself back. legally he still has that option and i want to be clear the
12:02 pm
campaign has not converted any of that 35$35.9 million you seen the screen it currently owes to donald trump, haven't converted to it a donation. his aides now are saying to me they do intend to make that change. if they do it, go beyond words we will know because it has to be filed with the federal election commission. this is new and folks who may have seen my earlier reporting know i did speak to the trump campaign multiple aides about this story before we went up on air. at that time, the aides said they had no intention to do this but didn't close the door. what's new, donald trump telling us he will be convertings this to a contribution and has no intent to take the funds and put them back in his pocket. that's what's new. >> in other words, he's self-fund and gave this loan, technically a loan to his campaign and it is going to now be a contribution, he's never going to ask for that money back to himself. >> that's what he's saying his
12:03 pm
intent now is and new. we will keep an eye on that. every month under the law the campaigns have to file what's going on. as of now it's filed as a loan. if he converts it to a donation it will close the door on that and deadline by august and politically that could go a long way for him showing donors in the general election all their money would only go tarced wing and nothing backwards in the primary. >> if he's willing to give 35$39 million of his own to this effort maybe that encourages other billionaires to give him money as well. thank you. to the other trump story of this day, perhaps the most fascina fascinating, has to do with donald trump's publicist, name well-known to reporters at the time, john miller, because the real estate billionaire was so busy would speak on behalf of
12:04 pm
donald trump. was john miller actually druona trump himself. obtaining a 25-year-old audio recording where this spokesman talks glowingly about trump. >> what's your name again? >> john miller. >> what's your position? >> i'm sort of handling pr because you get so much of it. >> miller is speaking to a magazine reporter about trump's status and particularly about madonna. >> well she called and wanted to go out with him, that i can tell you. the people that you write about really or -- they call, they just call, actresses people that you write about just call to see if they can go out with him. >> that is part of a 14 minute call from 1991 released this morning. this morning on "today," trump said the "washington post" got it wrong. he said that's not his voice. >> it was not me on the phone. it doesn't sound like me on the
12:05 pm
phone, i will tell you that and it was not me on the phone. when was this? 25 years ago? >> he then urged matt and savannah to talk more about current substitutes. -- current subject, then a senior advisor tweeted out a three decade old interview as a must see. we have a still divided gop of contributors, but before we're going out today, this morning, donald trump with pretty plain language talking about his unreleased taxes. >> do you believe voters have a right to see your tax returns before they make a final decision? >> i don't think they do. i do say this, i will really gladly give them. not going to learn anything. it's under routine audit. when the audit ends i will present them and hope it's before the election. >> what is your tax rate? >> none of your business. you'll see it when i release it.
12:06 pm
i fight very hard to pay as little tax as possible. >> right here in new york city, is the campaign not worried about the impact on voters, jacob, having him not release these taxes? >> reporter: they don't seem to be. trump was asked about that specifically. he said voters don't care. the only people who care about my tax returns are you, referring to the media. then he goes on talking about his taxes how many other presidents did not release their tax returns, other candidates, fact check on that, every presidential candidate since 1976 has released his tax returns and in fact in 1973, richard nixon, while under audit released his. donald trump went on in this interview about the tax returns. when pressed, you heard it there when he said, none of your business and did disclose he has no bank accounts or overseas accounts period and always tried to get the very lowest tax rate
12:07 pm
possible. that won't be new and the swiss bank account won't be new. and he said the only people who care are the voters although he didn't say they had a right to see his taxes. >> he has said he wants his tax returns to be released after the audit is complete. he just doesn't know whether that will be completed before november or not. >> jacob outside trump tower in new york. thanks. dust settling in washington the day after donald trump's meeting on capitol hill hoping to smooth the bumpy road to the general election. luke, what's the day after like? >> reporter: well, we survived the trump circus, i can tell you that. interesting. there has been some movement, desire to coalesce around donald trump the presumptive nominee of the republican party. everybody aside from speaker
12:08 pm
ryan, in a position of importance, said they enjoyed their time with donald trump and thought he was a different persons behind closed doors than he presented himself on the campaign. i got an stunt to speak with cathy mcmorris-rodgers, the highest ranking woman in that conference, in the room with donald trump yesterday, take a listen what she thinks will be an advantage for him as he runs for the presidency. >> i believe we can unite around a belief that it can't be business as usual. it can't be status quo. that's more than anything what donald trump represents. our members also agree it can't be business as usual. >> she thinks trump as the disruptor could work on the campaign trail. i also asked her about donald
12:09 pm
trump's comments about women and she is the highest ranking woman in this conference. she said, i encouraged him to talk about how women are job trainers and entrepreneurs and out there and softening donald trump to the voters and want that to continue. as to when paul ryan embraces him, it's anybody's guess. he still has concerned about his conservative principles and legislative branch and executive branch. donald trump expected to come back to capitol hill and have a meeting with the entire conference. can't wait to see the circus once again, media circus. we were already on to other topics of donald trump, him allegedly pretending to bis his own spokesman and one of his
12:10 pm
former butlers accused of making threats against president obama. what's the sense on capitol hill. is there a little bit of eye rolling? >> reporter: there's a worry. interesting you bring that up. i spoke to some members who made that point, said whale we want to get on board, we're team players and you never know where it ends from donald trump and never imagine comes out of the bl blue, a tape from 1990s and his butler saying awful hor ren do is things. -- horrendous things. they said we don't want to answer the butlers comments on the campaign trail and why the nominee was pretending to be a publicist and women he was kad e dating. it's odd and these people at the house are regimented and
12:11 pm
scheduled and cross every t and every eye, they're getting used to this chaotic nature. >> luke, friday afternoon, thanks. ben ginsburg, an analyst. scale of 1-10, how bad a week did donald trump have? >> i think he had a pretty good week. the meetings in washington we werepositwere posi positive, a natural inclination to coalesce. he took the right steps to get there. interestingly enough the three stories we talked about today had nothing to do with the issues. the whole issues debate is getting pushed down a bit in all of this. >> isn't that your candidate, because of the person at the top of the ticket right now? >> i don't know if we want to
12:12 pm
get into a chicken and egg d discourse about it whether it's the media or candidate. there's a certain fast nation prevalent throughout the primary with things other than the issues and probably a mutual-beneficial society between the media and the candidate. >> let me ask you about the issues. yesterday, we heard the chair saying he thinks trump is largely together with the republican platform, most of what he believes in is reflected on the party as a whole believe. you look where paul ryan and donald trump disagree, tax cuts, immigration, the ban on muslims, there are areas it does seem like your candidate is the gr--s out of sync with the greater party. >> that's the part of the process that usually coalesce
12:13 pm
around the platform. in every cycle there have been disagreements on the republican platform, generally between more moderate and conservative groups. what you're seeing in these debates is a healthy sign ideas are being debated within the party. they'll come to an agreement. >> we first met when you were the top lawyer for george w. bush. >> the golden years. >> the golden years. >> we were in hotels for a while. you used to be quite close with the bush family and baker also used to be close. do you think that was significant trump was sitting down with a bush statesman of the republican party? >> i think it's important that he sats down with a statesman of the party, particularly someone
12:14 pm
who understands the policy and politics. it absolutely is a positive sign for donald trump to say that he wants to sit down with james baker. >> let me ask you about the tax returns. you talked with jacob rascon. he said on good morni"good morn america" this morning he doesn't think the voters really care about his taxes. every president, even nixon under audit released his taxes. why won't they release them to stop this conversation? >> i can tell you, not based on donald trump but other candidates i represented who have been asked for their taxes. they feel it is a tremendously invasive process. there is sort of a number natural reluctance to disclose that information. if any can get away with not disclosing his taxes, it's donald trump. there will be a media drumbeat
12:15 pm
and drumbeat from the democrats to release the taxes and that with other politicians has proven to be a tremendous distraction so eventually the taxes come out. >> lastly, you heard ari mellberg reporting at the top of the show, donald trump has given him a statement signed by donald trump saying the money he loaned the campaign will not need to be paid back to him, will be a contribution. how significant is that? >> only significant because of the issues raised. any candidate who has loaned money to a campaign does it as a loan, because of old federal election commission advisory opini opinions. if you give it as a contribution, it's a contribution and there's no flexibility. we advise all candidates to give it as a loan. when mitt romney gave it as a
12:16 pm
loan in 2008, he never had any intention of getting paid back and why it's done that way. >> and switch to it a contribution later. >> there was implication he had done something wrong and going to do a three-card monty on his voters but he followed the play all previous candidates have. >> thank you. >> thanks. coming up, donald trump's in the campaign spotlight for ties to racist marks. owen! hey kevin. hey, fancy seeing you here. uh, i live right over there actually. you've been to my place. no, i wasn't...oh look, you dropped something. it's your resume with a 20 dollar bill taped to it. that's weird. you want to work for ge too. hahaha, what? well we're always looking for developers who are up for big world changing challenges like making planes, trains who are up for big world and hospitals run better. why don't you check your new watch and tell me what te

12:22 pm
different side issues and who's racist and not and the bigot bomb being dropped by democrats all the time. he is a candidate who has created jobs and the clintons have been on the public payroll their entire lives and never created jobs. i hope he can focus on the race and what he's good at. a successful person inspired a lot of people to do great things and hopefully he can talk about jobs. >> earlier this week, a white nationalist was tied to donald trump's campaign as a delegate, like you, he applied to be a california delegate and not be at the convention. yesterday, mother jones releases a series of facebook posts by trump's former butler, the posts are outrageous, calls for president obama to be lynched. we spoke with him and this is him talking to our producer.
12:23 pm
>> there's more than some issues with him. he's a [ bleep ] trader. t-r-a-i-t-o-r, traitor. period. that's the way i feel. >> so you think that's what should be done with traitors? >> i think he ought to be hung. i think he should be hung. i think he should be hung next to hillary clinton and i think it should be public. i think it should be televised, i think it ought to be done from the portico of the white mosque. it used to be the white house. >> he did note he had never shared these views with donald trump and donald trump said in a statement he does not work at trump's place and hasn't in many years and we totally disavow and condemn these horrible statem t statements. the, not no-- the new york time said he worked there as late as
12:24 pm
this year j doesn. doesn't this give you pause to vote for donald trump? >> this is a chance for him to talk about mental health issues, that guy is crazy and he did. i think he did the right thing. he denounced him and now he needs to talk about what he's trying to do, bringing our party together and making sure we wan grow this party. donald trump has broken all the rules and creating new rules. how can we use what he's good at to support our conservative base and have a shot at winning this election in november. >> i understand that. that's not the first time of racise isist issue comments cam. he was asked about david duke and said he didn't know enough about him. you feel okay supporting a candidate like that? >> the david duke comment, i was sitting at home and it gave me pause. everybody knows who david duke is, donald trump knows who david duke is, no excuse, no room for
12:25 pm
margin to talk in and around that issue. the issue is he needs to take these issues as democrats drop the bigot bomb over and over again and dismiss them and get on message. >> democrats say he's bringing it on him semifinals, these are being brought by people around him. >> does hillary clinton get asked about david duke? >> she -- he doesn't support hillary clinton. >> that has nothing to do with issues the american people are concerned about. this is a distraction. >> you'll support him on the issues, you'll support him as you said, you believe in conservative policies and you believe he'll be able to make change in washington. >> look, i have twor choicve tw someone who has never done anything in the private sector and never created a job to. i have someone who has created jobs and knows how to improve

12:36 pm
noticed there were some correlati correlations, including arrival dates and we started to go back and, okay, if these people arrived at the same time, maybe they knew each other, what's the relationship, and we identified a small cell, group of americans who became radicalized and traveled over together and joined isis. a couple of them are still alive and with isis today. >> when you tell -- i know you told authorities here about what you discovered, what did they say? >> we obviously went to authorities and were seeking comment to say, what's being tone and how were -- being done and how were these cases missed. they said, like the fbi director said, the number of people leaving the country to join isis that are americans has gone down and restrictions have been increased. but there's a double-sided sword to that. a double-edged sword. >> right. if they're not leaving -- >> if they're not leaving, they're staying behind.

12:41 pm
this was the hot topic. >> it was, kate. the obama administration has really been very aggressive trying to do what it can to support what it sees as the civil rights of the transgender community. as you said in north carolina and now with this new rule regulation they call it a directive. they emphasize it is not about a knew layer of legality these communities must reach, they say they are trying to provide guidance to communities to deal with this issue of how schools should deal with students who are transgender. as you said, in so many communities they say this is overrea overreached. there has been a lot of heated school communities around the country, walkout by students in missouri. the obama administration says these laws that infringe on the rights of the transgender community are just not necessary. here is some of what josh earnest the spokesman had to say about that. >> there is a strong desire on
12:42 pm
the part of some politicians to try and score some cheap political points by presenting a solution to a problem that they can't prove exists. >> reporter: the administration also today issued some new ru s rulesen the healthcare area, basically adding more clarification what discrimination means to include transgender people. in two areas, education, health and as we saw last week, in terms of filing this lawsuit against the state of north carolina, the administration very aggressive in this area and a lot of strong pushback in this area of culture war in the united states. >> ron at the white house thank you so much. let me bring in sarah mcbride an lbgt advocate and campaign manager for the center for american progress. nice to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> i want to remind people, you got a lot of attention for a
12:43 pm
recent post, it went viral all over the world. it was a selfie you took of yourself after the bathroom law was passed and you wrote bargh me from this restroom doesn't help any and allow though continue to use this bathroom without fear of discrimination and harassment doesn't hurt any. stop this. we are good people. obviously, i didn't state the obvious, you're a transgender female and you're in that bathroom. you feel how about what's addressed by the obama administration? >> i think this entire week has been historic. it's shown the transgender community like me the federal government has our backs. the last several weeks we've been exposed to mean-spirited and hateful attacks in states like north carolina. what we're seeing now is bui building on a growing legal precedent that federal protections include protections for people who are transgender. the guidance released today, the lawsuit by the attorney general earlier in the week and the rule from the health and human
12:44 pm
services department really made clear transgender people are protected under discrimination laws and they deserve to be treated with dignity and fa fairness, whether at the doctor's office or schools. >> what about several states pushed back really hard. texas, the governor of arkansas, asa hutchinson just released a statement in part there is no recognizable problem in arkansas on this issue. the federal government is stirring the pot and meddling in local control. what do you say to that? >> certainly, we do see a problem in states like north carolina, but the need for this guidance isn't coming from people in north carolina passing hateful bills, it's coming from the fact that more and more americans are knowing people who are transgender are learning about transgender identities and issues and they want to do the right thing, they want to do the right thing both by the law and by their transgender students. by releasing this guidance, this is helpful clarification for
12:45 pm
schools across the country what the expectation is for how they treat their transgender students. with all due respect to asa hutchinson and lieutenant-governor of texas and governor of north carolina, this isn't about federal power, this is to make sure no student has to wake up in the morning fearful of bullying or discrimination or harassment when they go to school making sure transgender students like all students have equal access to safe and quality education. >> sarah mcbride, thanks so much? thanks for having me. when we come back, we check in with the democrats, these are pictures of bernie sanders campaigning in fargo, north dakota.

mobility is very important to me. that's why i use e*trade mobile. it's on all my mobile devices, so it suits my mobile lifestyle. and it keeps my investments fully mobile... even when i'm on the move. sign up at etrade.com and get up to six hundred dollars. to folks out there whose diabetic nerve pain... shoots and burns its way into your day, i hear you. to everyone with this pain that makes ordinary tasks extraordinarily painful, i hear you. make sure your doctor hears you too! i hear you because i was there when my dad suffered with diabetic nerve pain. if you have diabetes and burning, shooting pain in your feet or hands, don't suffer in silence!
12:48 pm
step on up and ask your doctor about diabetic nerve pain. tell 'em cedric sent you. let's talk about the democrats now. hillary clinton is off the trail today but bill clinton is campaigning for his wife in new jersey. at an event in patterson, a protester interrupted his speech asking why he put more people in prison a reference to a crime
12:49 pm
bill he put in law in 1994, something critics say ramped up prison sentences. >> okay, wait, wait, wait. don't get upset. first of all, more than -- may i answer? the crime bill, from 1994, which you must be talking about. also contained a provision which no one ever mentioned, which forbade first time drug offen r offenders from being covered by the excessive sentencing laws. did you know that? i bet you didn't. secondly, we put 100,000 police on the street and we passed an assault weapons ban with an ammunition clip limit which -- [ applause ] >> which along with the background check law gave us a 25 year low in crime. yes. yes, but they have to believe that you're prepared to win elections. you have to vote in every
12:50 pm
election, we have to do that. one of our most important things is that -- >> let him one of our most important things is to do that. [ crowd chanting ] >> they're chanting "feel the bern" there. let's go to fargo, north dakota, chris jansing. what are you seeing there? >> good afternoon, kate, this is the second of three events for bernie sanders in north dakota today. really interesting he's put forward a new argument that we hadn't heard before when he crashed a jane sanders event this morning in grand fork. he started talking about a 50-state strategy, how the democratic national convention looks at the battleground states and focuses on them, puts their money, time, and attention into them, but places like this ought to be getting attention as well.
12:51 pm
it's something that really shows you the breach not necessarily between the clinton's and the sanders' camp, although it's separate to separate the clinton camp from the dnc, but he's really not happy. last week he sent a letter to the democratic national committee, saying he wanted them to look at the people who had been appointed for the convention, on the platform committees. he's not happy with the response he's gotten, or has not gotten. and it's a delicate dance for hillary clinton, because even has pressure is mounting for bernie sanders to get out of the race, she wants the enthusiasm of his supporters that he's gotten. on the other hand, she has her own agendas. there are some areas in which they could agree, for example, on a platform that pushed for a higher minimum wage, maybe expanded health care, but there are other areas that are important to bernie sanders,
12:52 pm
like fracking, some tough regulations to deal with climate change and wall street regulations where hillary clinton is not going to get on board. so right now, they appear to be at a stand-off. sanders' strategy, hit all the states that are going to be voting between new and june 7 in california. his campaign believes the race is closer there than the polls would have you believe. they're not doing major advertising there. they're counting on bernie sanders to come out, appeal to the crowd and get people excited and get them to the polls. kate? >> chris jansing, thanks so much. up next, the one thing congress maybe can agree on, battling the nation's heroin and prescription drug abuse problem, an epidemic growing at a frightening rate. new action from capitol hill next. his motorcycle insurance to geico.

>> as the house speaker said yesterday, more americans now die from drug overdoses than from traffic accidents.
12:56 pm
now there's new action to address this rapidly growing epidemic. the house passed a series of bills intended to combat the growing problem with painkiller abuse and heroin use. these bills provide for substance abuse treatment, education, and law enforcement efforts. the largest house bill, approved by a bill of 413-5. so the $103 million a year. it doesn't actually provide the funds for that, instead leaving that to future spending bills. some health advocates have said, despite the support, the new legislation comes up short because it's not adequately funded. we'll keep you posted on the progress of that legislation. that does it for me this hour. i'll see you back here on monday. have a great weekend. up next, msnbc's road warriors, you're going to get a behind-the-scenes look of what it's really like to cover one of, if not the most fascinating presidential campaigns in recent
